Love Letters, by A. R. Gurney, centers on two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III. Sitting side by side, they read the notes, letters and cards – in which, over nearly 50 years, they discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats – that have passed between them throughout their separated lives. A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the production will feature Walt Willey, seen in last season’s An Evening with Wild Bill, as Andrew and BCPA Director Tina Salamone as Melissa.

Post-Show Meet and Greet
Included in your ticket purchase is a post-show reception, complete with heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. This will also be your opportunity to meet-and-greet with Walt Willey and to learn about The Creativity Center, an arts art education facility that is the final element to be realized in Bloomington’s Master Plan for a Cultural District. The newly formed 501©3 group, Friends of the BCPA…incorporated to help raise funds for the development of The Creativity Center…will be on hand to facilitate a silent auction, orchestrate some raffles and thank you for your contribution to this very worthwhile project.

The Creativity Center
Situated directly north of the BCPA, the Creativity Center was envisioned as a part of Bloomington’s Master Plan for a Cultural District and has already secured around $1,000,000 in private funds towards its completion. Today, the location is being used for a variety of arts education programs. The BCPA has established widespread use of the building by a diverse group of community arts groups including Miller Park Summer Theatre, The Holiday Spectacular, Inc., The Diversity Project, the BCAI School of Arts, Bike Blono’s Walk In/Bike Out initiative, and more to bolster our fundraising efforts and verify a need for its eventual renovation.
